Player Ratings: Bayern Munich 6-1 Wolfsburg

Goal.com takes a closer look at the men involved in a dominant victory for die Roten, who move into the DFB-Pokal final and stay on course for an incredible treble

By Daniel Edwards

  • Manuel Neuer
    115
    15
    2.50

    Manuel Neuer

    Little he could do to stop a thunderbolt from Diego. Was not overly troubled aside from the goal, but was there when needed.

  • Dante
    123
    12
    2.50

    Dante

    Strong in the air and rarely troubled by Wolfsburg's offensives, a routine day at the office for the composed Brazilian.

  • Daniel Van Buyten
    107
    12
    3.00

    Daniel Van Buyten

    Proved a worthy deputy for Boateng in the middle, cruising through the game with little trouble. His distribution from the back was an added bonus.

  • Philipp Lahm
    125
    8
    3.00

    Philipp Lahm

    An impressive showing from die Roten's captain, who made his way up and down the field. A great low cross almost created the opener.

  • Diego Contento
    98
    21
    2.50

    Diego Contento

    Gave namesake Diego far too much space and was punished as the Brazilian notched a cracker of a goal. His left flank was a weak point for Bayern.

  • Javi Martínez
    130
    8
    3.50

    Javi Martínez

    Forced to play deeper than usual thanks to Wolfsburg's aggressive approach, nevertheless recovered well and was key in their play on the break.

  • Arjen Robben
    166
    13
    3.50

    Arjen Robben

    Was electric in the first 45 minutes as Bayern's fast-paced game suited him to the ground. Laid on the first goal and converted the second with a nonchalant finish.

  • Xherdan Shaqiri
    349
    11
    4.00

    Xherdan Shaqiri Top of the Match

    A towering performance from the Switzerland international, who masterminded Bayern's counter play. Was vital in both first-half goals, and a great finish supplied his own.

  • Bastian Schweinsteiger
    155
    22
    3.00

    Bastian Schweinsteiger

    Went so close to giving Bayern the lead with an instinctive effort that flew just wide. Was not his usual authoritative self in the middle.

  • Mario Mandzukic
    233
    23
    3.50

    Mario Mandzukic

    Showed great bravery to push his way through the defence and convert Robben's cross. Not always involved, but showed his poaching instincts when it counted.

  • Thomas Müller
    110
    32
    2.50

    Thomas Müller

    Not the most impressive of games from the forward, but thought quickly to set up Shaqiri for the decisive third goal.

Substitutions

  • Rafinha
    81
    10
    2.50

    Rafinha

    Helped complete the rout with a busy appearance towards the end.

  • Luiz Gustavo
    88
    5
    2.50

    Luiz Gustavo

    Entered late and kept up the pressure in the middle.

  • Mario Gomez
    303
    24
    4.00

    Mario Gomez

    A sensational cameo. Three goals in just six minutes for the supersub.

  • Diego Benaglio
    12
    13
    2.50

    Diego Benaglio

    Had no answer for Bayern as die Roten's finishing was top-class on the night. Could do little for any of the six goals.

  • Alexander Madlung
    6
    31
    1.00

    Alexander Madlung Flop of the Match

    A nightmare match for the centre-back. Appeared to give up towards the end and was little more than a spectator as Gomez gleefully buried the visitors.

  • Naldo
    7
    16
    2.00

    Naldo

    Had one of Wolfsburg's best chances of the night, a towering header that went just wide. Lost Mandzukic for the first goal and struggled with Bayern's swift attacks.

  • Fagner
    3
    15
    2.00

    Fagner

    Guilty of losing Shaqiri in the build up to the second goal, and was punished as the game began to slip away.

  • Ricardo Rodriguez
    5
    13
    2.00

    Ricardo Rodriguez

    His delivery from set-pieces was one of Wolfsburg's best attacking options, and nearly yielded a goal for Naldo.

  • Vieirinha
    15
    13
    2.50

    Vieirinha

    Never stopped trying to unlock the Bayern defence, in a tireless display. Went closer than most in a green shirt to scoring with a fine shot saved by Neuer.

  • Diego Ribas
    63
    9
    3.00

    Diego Ribas

    The best of the bunch for a Wolfsburg team that fell just short against the champions. His beauty in the first half will be remembered.

  • Makoto Hasebe
    5
    21
    2.00

    Makoto Hasebe

    Started strongly, but soon found himself overwhelmed as Bayern found their devastating stride. Failed to make enough impact going forward.

  • Jan Polak
    4
    13
    2.50

    Jan Polak

    Always strong in midfield, but could not provide that necessary spark to make Wolfsburg competitive and threaten the upset.

  • Slobodan Medojevic
    5
    24
    2.00

    Slobodan Medojevic

    Proved a more than capable match for Martinez in the early stages, but soon succumbed to his team's malaise and was powerless to stop their humiliation.

  • Ivica Olic
    43
    17
    2.00

    Ivica Olic

    Completely nullified by the Bayern backline. It's hard to remember a single chance for the lone striker who failed to impose himself on the game.

Substitutions

  • Christian Träsch
    5
    14
    2.00

    Christian Träsch

    Witnessed a nightmare last 15 minutes after coming off the bench.

  • Bas Dost
    8
    14
    1.50

    Bas Dost

    Came in just in time to watch his side collapse around him.

  • Patrick Helmes
    4
    13
    2.00

    Patrick Helmes

    Must have wished he stayed on the bench as Bayern ran rampant at the end.
